When we think about new technology for imaging professionals, we normally think about new scanning technology. There are regularly new MRI-type machines being created in order to improve the strength and quality of imaging results. However, that's not the only kind of technology that imaging professionals use. Imaging professionals must also use technology to review and organize the information from their patients' scans. A new web-based management software program called Telerad aims to assist those professionals in doing that more efficiently and successfully.
"Telerad enables teleradiologists to access their studies over the Web from any computer, while maintaining HIPAA compliance, and keeps both stationary images and animations in an FDA-compliant Dicom format, so accurate measurements can be taken as though the doctor were actually in the office with the patient."

This new software technology is available for use on all types of scan technology including PET scans, MRIs, CT scans and other imaging options. Question of the Day: How do you see imaging technology of this kind changing in the next five years?
